The news just keeps on getting grimmer for the Cleveland Browns, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
The team has placed starting linebacker Christian Kirksey and defensive back E.J. Gaines on injured reserve. Kirksey injured his hamstring during Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, while Gaines suffered his second concussion of the season in the first quarter of the game.
The moves were announced on the team’s website.
Because NFL rules require players to miss eight games after being placed on injured reserve, Kirksey and Gaines are done for the season.
The injuries were just the latest to hit the defensive side of the ball.
